Google Glass Explorer bundle now available for purchase


Hot on the heels of Google’s announcement of the KitKat update for Glass, the company has officially kicked off its one-day sale of its wearable device.

Any U.S. consumer can now become part of the Google Glass Explorer Program by ponying up $1,500 plus tax for a Glass Explorer bundle. Each purchase comes with a free shade or frame, charger, pouch, hard case and mono earbud. The colors available include Charcoal, Tangerine, Cotton, Shale and Sky.

Up until now, Google’s Glass Explorer Program has been invite-only. The company has expanded the program on a couple of occasions, but it’s still been somewhat difficult to join. Now any adult that lives in the U.S. and has $1,500 to spare can get some Glass of their very own. Obviously this program isn’t for everyone, but it’s great to see Google finally giving everyone an equal chance to get Glass. Plus, today’s offer is good for Google because it gives the company a chance to greatly expand its Glass testing ahead of the device’s public launch later this year.

Now that Glass is available to all U.S. residents and will begin receiving a KitKat update later this week, are any of you planning to pull the trigger on a unit today?
